Curbside gripe Revell Corvette C5R Daytona

I am considerably less than "Jonesed" by theengine anddrivetrain detail since i have discovered that the front section is not removable!
This is just acurbside kit with a lot ofextra parts!
Maybe i will put the engine on a stand next to the completed kit.
What a weird design for the kit.
Joe. Rant off

The really annoying ( to me) Revell racing Corvette is the C6R, with just a plenum and an "engine front" covering a molded-in chassis blob, though it can be a beauty too. At least IT has opening doors and hood.

Now what would be cool, is if Revell would update the C6R for the current ALMS GT version.....

the resin body has a removeable front clip and several other corrections to the Revell body. I just hope my Scale Motor Sports carbon fibre and photoetch fits the resin body.
